Trinity Seven episode 04

I knew it. The protagonist couldn’t just become an almighty mage overnight just because he can copy people’s powers. That would’ve been awesome ridiculous. Yes, this makes a little bit more sense I guess. Doesn’t it?

[HorribleSubs] Trinity Seven - 04 [720p].mkv_snapshot_04.29_[2014.10.30_00.00.48]Surprising episode, I must say. Or was it? They focussed so much on Yui and her bizarre condition that there had to be something to it. I suppose it would only be a matter of time before something went wrong, but for it to happen right away is just… disappointing? What bothers me most is that it seems that almost anyone can cause one of those disasters. It first I thought it was only Arata since he was a special case, but now everyone with strong magical powers seems to be making that list, which means that the headmaster and the Trinity Seven (and other characters like them) pretty much come to mind.

[HorribleSubs] Trinity Seven - 04 [720p].mkv_snapshot_13.01_[2014.10.30_00.01.15]So… Arata needs to meet certain conditions before he can uses someone else’s powers, it seems. I guess they didn’t really bother telling us what those conditions could be, but my guess is that the person whose powers he plans on using needs to give his or her consent before he can actually them, which makes his ability a bit less amazing.

What happens now? Well… I imagine that Arata has quite a few more days to enjoy his harem whilst more and more characters start to fall for him. First it was Lilith, then Arin and now Levi. It’s a matter of time before the rest follows in their footsteps. That’s the problem with stories like these; the general idea is all too obvious.

Trinity Seven episode 03

So we finally got a clear picture of what we can expect from Trinity Seven. We already knew what it was about and had a rough idea of what we could expect, but now we know for sure. We finally know what drives this story.

[HorribleSubs] Trinity Seven - 03 [720p].mkv_snapshot_07.50_[2014.10.22_23.47.56]Despite the fact that I dislike the way they started this episode (as though nothing had happened last week, followed up by the actual story of what happened), I still find it very interesting. I also find that other girl, Yui, quite interesting. She seems to have an interesting ability. I cannot help but be a little curious, you know?

I won’t even discuss those hot springs and beach scenes for too long. What’s the point? The protagonist is a straightforward pervert that will always say what’s on his mind without thinking things through. When you combine all of that with a group of cute girls… Well, the result is pretty darn obvious if you look at it objectively.

[HorribleSubs] Trinity Seven - 03 [720p].mkv_snapshot_14.56_[2014.10.22_23.48.07]But no, Arata takes the spotlight again after he officially became a mage. He accessed the archives, chose a “thema”, and actually entered this so-called “magus-mode”. I am not sure if I understood this correctly, but I am pretty sure that a mage can only research one “thema” and can therefor only use one type of magic. It seems that that doesn’t apply to our protagonist. He can chose whatever “thema” he wants and utilize whatever type of magic he wants. I don’t know if there’s a limit or anything like that, but I’m guessing he’s going to be copying the magic of the Trinity Seven members, which would be why he needs to meet all seven of them.

Bonjour: Koiaji Patisserie

This is not at all bad for an anime short. It’s too bad that it’s too damn girly for me, otherwise I definitely would’ve watched it.

Bonjour Koiaji PatisserieThe artwork looks surprisingly good for an anime short. I dare say that it looks too good for anime short.

The story is obviously created for female audiences. It is by no means a great story, but if it weren’t so obnoxiously girly I definitely would’ve given this a chance.

Go for it, ladies. It may be an amusing way to spend five minutes a week.

Plot Summary: The original story follows Sayuri Haruno, a girl who attends an elite confectionery school Fleurir on a scholarship to follow her dream to open a pastry shop. There she meets several charming young men.

Trinity Seven episode 02

I’ll have to admit that I’m kind of taking a risk with this one. I wasn’t actually planning to write about Trinity Seven, but I cannot help but like the “ecchiness” of it all. We’ll just have to see for ourselves if the story is still any good in a few weeks’ time.

[HorribleSubs] Trinity Seven - 02 [720p].mkv_snapshot_07.02_[2014.10.15_23.03.43]So Arata, the protagonist, is to become a demon lord, right? I’ve seen plenty of anime in my lifetime and I can honestly say that that’s a bad thing. Usually those kinds of characters end up being observed or killed on the spot. This isn’t really like that. Although he is being observed, he is also seen as some kind of almighty hero that could end up saving lives. He already has a line-up of girls that are interested in him and there doesn’t really seem to be an organisation out there that wants to use him somehow (although the school itself could be seen as an organisation that wants to use his abilities in the end).

[HorribleSubs] Trinity Seven - 02 [720p].mkv_snapshot_21.10_[2014.10.15_23.04.13]I honestly don’t mind if all the episodes are like this one. Sure, getting stick in some room with three girls that really want to pee is a bit odd, but it put a smile on my face nonetheless. That is just how I see Trinity Seven; a quest to find the protagonist’s old world whilst he enjoys the company of those girls and the situations that they find themselves in from time to time.

After all of this, am I still interested in the next episode? Yes I am. We caught a glimpse of Arata’s unbalanced power and two new girls that want to kill him because of it. How this will end is obvious; the grim moiré will probably end up protecting its master and Arata will end up befriending those two girls after their failed attempt to kill him.

Trinity Seven

Another anime by one of the better studios. I do have some hope for this, but I feel as though the story will be the weak link here. I am trying to figure out how they are going to approach this.

Trinity SevenThe artwork isn’t at all bad. In fact, it’s quite nice. The characters look good, it is pretty detailed and I really loved some of the expressions on Lilith’s face.

As I said earlier; the story is what worries me. I got me interested for now, but even I must admit that it isn’t anything special. Stories like these either turn out very predictable or completely pointless. So yeah, I am hoping that this is one those rare golden nuggets.

I laughed and I cheered a little. It may look promising now, but it will depend on how the story unfolds from here on out. It promises to be very funny, quite romantic and filled to the brim with magical action. I therefor advise you to check out the first episode.

Plot Summary: Everyday is a normal day in the small town where Kasuga Arata lives; however, everything changed on the day of the Black Sun, and following it, a magician appears before him. The Black Sun caused the Breakdown Phenomenon which destroyed the town where he lives. Because of this, his normal life was artificially reconstructed by a Grimoire that his childhood friend had left. Just what is the purpose of the magician coming to the town? What will he do with the Grimoire’s keepsake?
